Couple of things:

If you use Pucks to float a floor - how do you keep them frozen? and
does the floor slide?

http://www.lis.net.au/~johnsay/Acoustics/ <------- John
Sayers'website, well worth visiting. If you don't know him already,
he's one of Australia's top engineers / producers and studio
designers. Look under
"studios under construction" and there are some pictures of my place
there (sjoko's studio). Thank god I'm a bit further ahaid now...

Who's dropped those 87????? I'll slap him / her.

Do you know those Furman rack lights etc? The owner of Furman, John
Furman, has just had a SPAMMER change operation (its true, he was at the
NAMM as Jackie). Will they now change the name of the company to
ShavedWoman??????

Construction adhesive...Industrial, not Home Depot. I would only glue one
side so as not to over-couple. It's not like the floor is going anywhere (at
least you hope not). In my first project studio I placed them every 16" and
just laid down T&G plywood on top (glued at the seems). I also put some
fiberglass under the plywood, between the pucks. Then I put down some rebar
an inch above the plywood and poured 3" of lightweight Styrofoam aggregate
cement. It's lighter than regular cement and has less lateral sound
transmission.
Finish surface as you would starting on any cement floor. One cool thing is
that
if you put down a sub floor, you can put wood flooring down and shoot nails
right
into the cement. I should mention that the foundation floor had a 5 mil
barrier under
it.

It worked beautifully, The cement never cracked and it was solid as a
rock.
I would probably use a layer of 3/4" particle board over the 3/4" T&G plywood
for extra strength. I'm doing it differently on the studio I'm building now
because
I'm incorporating radiant floor heat. Nice, warm, and quiet.

Rubber mats for horse stalls is cheap and cutable with a table saw.
They are about 1 1/4" thick.

Depends on whether he/she/shim can deal with the stubble. Drives my wife crazy.
